Now, my luggage and handbags are organized and I am ready to relax on vacation.”
Here is Chana’s list of the ten most important things you need to pack in your handbag on an African Safari.
Chana’s Packing List
Even if you are traveling with a kosher tour like the Walles family, always remember, to pack kosher snacks in your bag.
It can be a challenge to find kosher food along the way. You will be so happy to pass your kids a granola bar or snack or some almonds.
